Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Collection

2020 has been stressful since the beginning. Honestly, we have just been very good at making memes to make things less somber, but it's been a woeful time so far. The COVID19 pandemic's scale is unprecedented, and the hardest part is probably not knowing what the future will be. We keep on talking about the term "new normal" every single day in the news, but this new life is far from normal. I have been listening closely to the news of four countries since February, and the trickiest part thus far has been needing to unlearn things about COVID19 that have been refuted by newer information in the past weeks or months. Ah, it's all been so crazy.

Most of us probably haven't thought of our skincare regimen as we've been so preoccupied with the most essential, survival-related endeavors in these tough times. But stress affects us holistically, from our mind to our body, and it can manifest in blemished and dull skin. In uncertain times, Kiehl's wants to offer a time tested solution. Kiehl's has been around since 1851, and their Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution has been around for over 10 years. This has been around for so long that they can now boast that their serum is the world's number one serum. 

I'm sure this is not the first time you're seeing this serum, and most certainly not the last time you'll hear of it, at least from me. Their studies are promising, and the reviews have all been raves so far. 

According to Kiehl's clinical tests (based on a 12-week study of 17 women of varying skin types): Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution visibly reduced hyperpigmentation by 49%, dark spots by 39%, and post-acne marks by 24.8%. Additionally, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution brightened the skin by 41% and enhanced clarity by 37%.

These findings speak volumes to me because dull skin is my key concern, and since I am pale, it's very easy for my skin to look tired. Pale skin also means that my acne marks show up waaay more prominently than if I weren't this pale.

Interestingly, even though there are so many natural ingredients in this serum, the packaging is so minimalist. Usually, products with Vitamin C would be so orange, or natural ingredients are excessively highlighted with very green and brown packaging. 

This has activated Vitamin C to reduce dark spots and diminish discoloration, White Birch Extract
to restore hydration and nutrients in the skin, and Peony Extract (a staple in traditional Chinese medicine) to protect the skin against oxidative damage. The powerful trio join forces to provide skin clarity and to help even the skin tone. To whoever who wishes to know, this also boasts no silicones, no parabens, no fragrance, no colorants, and no optical diffusers.

This has been touted fast-acting serum as I have heard of people seeing the difference in as little as a week. Overall, the long-term goal with this serum is to prevent the formation of future dark spots and other skin discolorations.
